National Call for Commitment Statements on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic

To provide an opportunity for organizations across the country to discuss, share plans of action, and collaboratively accelerate change in reversing the opioid crisis, the National Academy of Medicine's (NAM's) Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic is collecting statements describing organizational goals or commitments to action in the following focus areas:

  1. Health professional education and training
  2. Opioid prescribing guidelines and evidence standards
  3. Prevention, treatment, and recovery
  4. Research, data, and metrics

If your organization has already undertaken or is committed to action in countering the opioid epidemic, we invite you to submit an organizational commitment statement. These statements will be posted on the NAM website and may be shared with the press and/or used at future Action Collaborative meetings. 

Please submit your statement by completing the questionnaire below. Your statement may be uploaded as a Word or PDF document. 

Submission guidelines:

  • Statements should be 500 words or less. If applicable, you may include a link to a longer statement on your website.
  • Statements should describe organizational (rather than personal) commitments.
  • Statements may not contain marketing or promotional material. 
  • Statements that are responsive to the prompt will be posted on the NAM website.
  • The NAM may choose not to post submissions that are unresponsive to the prompt or contain marketing or promotional materials.
  • Statements will not be edited without approval from the submitting organization.
  • Organizations that submit commitment statements will be featured on the NAM's website as Network Organizations of the Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic.
  • Contact information for your organization’s liaison will be posted on the NAM website to facilitate a self-sustaining action network unless you specifically request otherwise .
By sharing a commitment statement, you are joining the Action Collaborative as a network organization committed to reversing the U.S. opioid epidemic. Learn more about what it means to be a Network Organization >>
